An ongoing journal of building an "off-the-grid" solar homestead, life, boring tedious stuff, knee-jerk eco-socialist opinion, work (as little as possible) and family---from the edge of the wilderness (where the Sierra meets the Cascades).

The Next Wall To Be Built...
We are taking this one wall at a time. While we wait for the Cob to dry on the other wall we built, we have decided to do this Southern wall next:
We need to complete the Stone Stem wall to start it. So that is what we did today.
We finished digging out the foundation and put some gravel in it (for drainage). This is on top of the Rubble Trench we dug last summer.
So we put up some forms the whole length of the wall and started building Stem Wall.
